Las Exposiciones Históricas de 1892

El Archivo Fotográfico de este Museo conserva una serie de positivos sobre papel tomados con motivo de la celebración de las Exposiciones Históricas de 1892. Además de estos fondos, se han localizado otras fotografías en distintas instituciones, que también documentan gráficamente ambas exposiciones y que se reúnen por primera vez en un único catálogo. Contextualizaremos estas fotografías, así como lo que aparece en ellas, profundizando en el conocimiento de un momento muy concreto de nuestra historia.
